I suspect he could apply for a math position even without certification, provisionally. So, he could get his certification or search for other work while he's provisional--or both. A lot of districts are short on math and science teachers.
I don't know about Kentucky, but some Kansas school districts have programs that allow uncertified individuals to take a crash-course summer certification session, and then begin teaching in the fall while working towards a teaching degree.
